As you know, some times I have a lot I want to say.

You know... like last week when I racked up about 15,000 words worth of conversation around my experience with macro counting. 

And then sometimes I simply want to say "TRY THIS RECIPE."


Skip the can of soup! This family-friendly recipe for easy Chicken Florentine Lasagna uses hummus for a hearty filling.

Really, no other explanation needed, but since I'm never at a loss for words....

My youngest son gave this lasagna a "9 and 3/4" on a scale of 1 to 10. (In case you're wondering why it wasn't a 10 he informed me "Nothing's perfect mom. There's always room for improvement.") 

In that case, I'd say this is as good as it gets. 

I used to make a variation of this lasagna any time I was taking a meal to a friend, a new mom or simply wanted a hearty crowd pleaser. But the version I used before called for cream of something (I forget now what) soup. I'm no cream-of-soup basher, but it's honestly not something I keep on hand anymore. 

Hummus, though. That's a different story. 

(In fact, one of the reasons I have SO much hummus right now is because Sabra is currently hosting a recipe contest with The Recipe ReDux and they sent me samples. This recipe is not a part of that contest or in any way sponsored by Sabra. But you know, I couldn't let good hummus go to waste.) 

So if you find yourself with an excess of hummus, a short supply of soup or simply wanting to make a "9 3/4 out of 10 recipe" for dinner tonight, this is the recipe for you. Enjoy!
